Beach Walk 517R – Paddling to Flat Island

There are not many chances to take a camera out on the water in the 6-person outrigger canoe – an icon of the water life in Hawaiʻi and the original mode of transportation.

Today’s episode takes you up close and personal. I hope you enjoy it!

You can see Lexi got lucky too.

Beach Walk 514 – Sandbar Sun Day

My friend Eric got home about a week ago from 7 months in Iraq.

We all jumped in their boat (Stacey calls it a dingy) and went out to the Kane’ohe sandbar. It’s one of the coolest hangouts! The water is just a few inches deep, clear and warm. People setup chairs, grills, and the kids run around loving it. Our friend Kaile is so happy her Dad is home. 🙂 Plus the Blue Angels were in town doing some acrobatics in the skies overhead. And we were able to play with the Funhogs new stand up paddle board. Mahalo for coming along with us!

Beach Walk 497 – Na Wahine O Ke Kai

Several of my girlfriends are paddling this weekend the 41 miles from the island of Molokai to the island of Oʻahu.

It is definitely an amazing race, 5.5 to 7.5 hours depending on your crew and the luck of the winds and surf. Big hugs to all of you! Mahalo to Carl Woerle and the Puakea Foundation for some awesome pictures of previous year’s races. (Yours truly Rox can even be found if you look hard.)

Beach Walk 479 – Finding All That Matters

My nephew Jordan came for a visit from California. We went SCUBA diving, saw dolphins, and found “all that matters” along the way.

One more reason why we locals say, “Lucky to live Hawaii!”

Beach Walk 478 – Fred’s Fishing Tips

My nephew Jordan is visiting and has wanted to learn how to use a Hawaiian sling.

If you watch Survivor you already know what a great fishing tool that can be! In perfect Beach Walks fashion, we came upon two “professional” fishermen, Fred and Gary, who agreed to talk story with us and share tips for finding octopus, which Jordan loves to eat. Today’s episode is a fun slice of “lucky we live Hawaii” life. So glad you can join us!
